Lakeview boat ramp open again

The public boat ramp located on Gantt Lake in Lakeview on Highway 29 North reopened Tues., Dec. 5, to the public.

The ramp was closed most of November for improvements to the existing pier and construction of a new pier.

“We rebuilt the existing south pier and built a new pier to the north,” said Abb Riley, PowerSouth Senior Real Estate Specialist. “With two piers instead of one, more boats will be able to load and unload from the area, alleviating a lot of congestion.”

The public boat ramp in Lakeview is one of several allowing access to Gantt Lake.

“PowerSouth has the civic responsibility of making sure that our facilities are well maintained,” Riley said. “We ask all boaters to please preserve the beauty of the facilities when enjoying the outdoors.”
